Affirming Life in the Face of Death: A Memoir

Mountain-climber Jim Wickwire watched three friends fall to their deaths and another slowly freeze to death. He spent two weeks alone on Mt. McKinley, injured and hungry, buffeted by storms and threatened by avalanches. In spite of pneumonia, pleurisy, pulmonary emboli, frostbite and lung surgery, Jim continues to climb.

In 'Addicted to Dangner' Jim looks back on the tragedies, successes and failures that have spanned his thirty-five year (and counting) career. Most importantly, he ruminates on the idea that he continued - and continues - to climb, in spite of the constant threat of death, because he is addicted to danger.

This is a fascinating and harrowing look at one man's memories, motivations, and choices, and an intimate portrait of a life where death always looms large.
